Today, Apple released its newly unveiled iPhone 5S and 5C to the public for in-store and online purchases. Unfortunately, those who waited in line for weeks to get their hands on the new "gold" iPhone will most likely be disappointed as the champagne colored phone appears to be in very short supply.

So how does the pricing breakdown? The iPhone 5S will cost $199 on a two-year contract across all the major carriers for the 16 GB model. $299 and $399 will land you the 32GB and 64GB versions, respectively. For those of you looking to buy off contract for an unlocked version, expect to be set back by $649, $749 and $849 for the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models.

The iPhone 5C is not much cheaper with the 16GB version costing $99 from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon, while the 32GB model runs $199. It appears that the 5C is only being offered in a contract free form at T-Mobile which will cost you $549. Alternatively, a SIM-free unlocked model that requires a GSM-compatible SIM card will set consumers back $649 each.
